Officials were called to a residence near the 100 block of East Dallas Road for a complaint around 6 p.m. When deputies arrived, a man, unrelated to the complaint call, ran, prompting officials to chase after him. 

A struggle with one of the deputies occurred after they caught up with the suspect. The deputy was hit in the forehead, reportedly with handcuffs, causing injury, officials said.

With the officer down, the suspect ran inside a house on East Dallas Road with handcuffs on, barricading himself.  

Police were in a standoff outside the house for over two hours, using a bullhorn urging to get the man to come outside. He eventually was brought out of the residence in handcuffs.

The deputy was taken to a local hospital. His condition is unknown.

There were more than 20 cruisers and fire vehicles at the scene, blocking the road at U.S. 68.
